Is it possible for an upstream to change license from a BSD-old to GPL? Consider the hypothesis that the product is a derivative work with a few old contributors. I see no reasons to do not relicense after adding
a credits note as required in the BSD license.

New work could be licensed under the GPL, but if you mean the type with the advertising clauses by "BSD-old", you need to read http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#OriginalBSD and http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/bsd.html

My Opinion Only and possibly not of any group I know.
